In The New English Garden the leading garden writer Tim Richardson, author of The Arcadian Friends, discusses twenty-five significant English gardens made or remade over the past decade. Together these represent a coherent overview of what remains probably the most inventive garden culture ion the world. With the benefit of an international perspective, the author surveys a wide spectrum of gardens in styles ranging from the cutting-edge naturalistic planting design of the Sheffield School to the scientific imagery of Througham Court. While many of these gardens are challenging or thought-provoking, other reflect the sensuously romantic tradition of English planting design, which has also been moving ahead in interesting ways. Through Tim Richardson's incisive writing, The New English Garden presents all that is most interesting about garden-making in England in the twenty-first century and is beautifully illustrated by Andrew Lawson's photography of some of England's most famous gardens, from Prince Charles's garden at Highgrove, Christopher Llyod's garden at Great Dixter and Arabella Lennox-Boyd's garden at Gresgarth right up to the Olympic Park in 2012. The Full List of Gardens is: * Armscote Manor * Mount St John * Packwood House * Scamptson Hall * Daylesford House * The Lynn Garden, Ascott * Great Dixter * Througham Court * Crockmore House * Pettifers * Waltham Place * Highgrove * Living Wall, Athenaeum Hotel * Trentham * Plaz Mataxu * Cottesbrooke Hall * Olympic Park * Temple Guiting * Angel Field * Hanham Court * Tilbuty Hall * Gresgarth * Bury Court * The Laskett * Wildside
